Continuing Adjunct Faculty Education (CAFE)

Continuing Adjunct Faculty Education (CAFE) Credits - Compensation Program

What does the program do?: Provide compensation to adjunct faculty for ongoing training and professional development related to Teaching, Learning, and Student Success. 

Why does EMCC support the program?: Adjunct faculty provide significant learning opportunities to community college students. Investing in adjunct faculty development, and their success in the learning environment impacts student success.

Who coordinates the CAFE?: The adjunct faculty development program is coordinated by EMCC's Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) with advice from the college's Professional Learning Community (PLC) advisory team.


  • Individuals must be an adjunct faculty member currently teaching for the semester at EMCC to be eligible for the CAFE credit program.
  • "Credits" cannot be carried over from one semester OR academic year to another.
  • Attend as many workshops as desired, but compensation is limited to only CAFE credit approved workshops. 
  • Funding is limited. Individuals who have not received compensation in prior semesters will be given first priority for compensation consideration. 

To participate:

  1. Register for CTL or Saturday workshops via CTL registration site
  2. Sign in and attend the workshops (*Must attend the entire workshop, no partial credit for partial attendance).
  3. Please note: you are no longer required to turn in the CAFE credit form. The CTL Administrative Specialist Sr. will be tracking your progress during the semester.  If you have additional questions please email
